Bocce Ball is coming to Playa

Coming up in May 29th, Playa del Carmen’s first ever Beach Bocce Ball Event will be here. This one-of-kind event is one not to be missed! The tournament will be held on May 29th, 2011 from 1:00-7:00 PM. If you’ve never played Bocce before, it only take one minute to learn!
Bocce Ball originated in Italy. It has become a popular sport throughout the world and now beach bocce ball has made its mark here in Playa. This will promise to be a spectacle. The game is played using a set of balls (bocces) which particpants toss in an effort to score points based on who gets the closest to a predetermined mark. It can be thought of almost like the american form of bowling, expect there are no pins. It does go well with a margarita though!
Sixteen teams, consisting of 2 people per team, will compete for the top spot, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be granted to the top 3 teams. Additional prizes will also be granted for funniest, cutest, and best dressed teams so be creative. The registration fee is $100.00 pesos per team, and includes an ice cold beer for each player.
